The longer your flooded property stays wet, the more damage the water does. There’s a reason water damage restoration companies are a 24/7 business.
Quickly addressing your flooded property could save you thousands of dollars down the line. Under ideal conditions mold growth can occur in 24-48 hours if the proper steps aren’t taken. Securing the source of water (broken pipe, toilet overflow, ect) is the first step in addressing your flooded property. Extracting water from carpet and other flooring materials is a great way to mitigate your damage.
Carpet and pad dry rapidly in the Las Vegas desert. Although important, carpet and pad aren’t the primary concern when it comes to drying out your home or business. Drywall, cabinets, insulation, subfloor, and other building materials will hold moisture for a very long time. Sometimes you may not be aware of the trapped moisture. Do you have laminate (pergo) flooring? The moisture barrier that was installed under your flooring traps moisture below the laminate and can creates a great environment for mold growth.
Our specialized moisture detection equipment allows us to track exactly where the water went. Hidden pocket of moisture may lead issues with mold if left unaddressed. Utilizing tools like thermal imaging cameras allows us to find moisture that many companies may not discover. Other specialty meters are used to check areas like wood flooring, cabinets, subflooring, insulation, and other building materials.
